The Christian - His Rights and Privileges (2)
- While sin has robbed the human race of spiritual rights and privileges — the believer, through the new birth, has been given a new relationship with God.
- The Bible teaches us that we have been given "all things" in Christ. The theme Peter is talking about is related to the needs of salvation and the daily life.
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. II Peter 1:3
- According to Scripture, therefore, (1) there are no "second-rate Christians (according to God's provision), (2) and every believer has the same provision for his daily life.
